Where to stay in HongKong?

When I got back from Hongkong, many asked:
“Where did you stay? How much is it per night? Expensive?”
I believe, “accommodation in HongKong is expensive” has become a known fact.

To be honest, to find budget stays in, HongKong -one of the most expensive cities in the world, is rather difficult. But, I am here to share with you a few affordable yet decent hotels around Hong Kong that I’ve found during my last trip.

#1 Hotel Mini, Causeway Bay – from HKD418/night

Address: 8 Sun Wui Rd, Hong Kong
Phone: +852 2537 4941

What I love about this hotel?

Hipster hotel lobby; the coffee machine, the swing chair & those quirky wall posters.

Food: The famous DinTaiFung is just 2 mins walk away.

Night life (bars): As a popular centre of nightlife in HK, you will find Mamoz with perfect night view in just 5mins walk away.

Good HK style buffet lunch. It’s not your ordinary Malaysian’s buffet, they have delicious egg tarts, braised pork and legit hongkong kailan.

Location is equally good! Located at the centre of wanchai & causeway bay!

Besides, if you’re planning to stay in Hongkong for some time, & looking for a long term stay, I believe the below 2 will be a good fit.

Easily accessible – 10mins walking distance To Sham Shui Po Station (Exit C 2)

If you are aware of how high the properties price in HK is, then you will know this is a steal!

That’s all for now. It’s after visiting all these places, I started to believe that there’s truly cheaper alternatives exist in Hongkong, that offer an equally good comfort & quality.

Do check them out if you plan to visit Hongkong!
Cheers! :D
